Ouray Colorado – Dramatic and Breathtaking

For more than a century Ouray, nicknamed the “Switzerland of America”, has been a popular destination for travelers from around the globe.

Set at the head of a narrow valley, Ouray is surrounded on three sides with snow-capped peaks that stretch 13,000 feet into the sky. This intimate community is truly among some of the most rugged peaks of the Colorado Rockies.

In addition to beautiful mountain views, Ouray is also known for its hundreds of miles of historic Jeep roads, sulfur-free hot springs, the world famous Ouray Ice Park and Ouray’s own natural wonder, the Box Canyon Falls.

Real Estate in Ouray is unique from many places in the West. In town, Victorian architecture is prominent, and many of the original homes in the area have been carefully restored to their turn-of-the-century traditional symmetrical lines and simple charm.

If Victorian architecture isn’t for you, Ouray still offers a variety of housing options. Real Estate prices in Ouray are generally lower than other areas of Colorado due to the fact that it is far from big cities and the amenities they offer.

Ouray is located 40 miles south of Montrose and only 50 miles (by road) from Telluride, providing easy access to the airport in Montrose and world-class skiing in Telluride.
